Sabine Nytte

Sabine Nytte, a Breton warrior, is first mate aboard the Red Wave in Solitude harbor. She claims to be the only source for the illicit drug Balmora Blue in the whole of Tamriel.

Sabine lives a comfortable existence aboard the Red Wave, spending most of her time wandering around the ship and conversing with her fellow pirates. At 8pm, she finds a bed and sleeps a solid 12 hours until 8am. During the related quest she moves outside and guards the deck at all times.

Sabine wears a set of steel plate armor with matching gauntlets and boots. She carries the key to the chest containing the Balmora Blue along with a selection of common loot and gold. In combat, she relies on a leveled battleaxe of the best possible quality.

Related QuestsEdit


Should you approach her before the quest she will be rather unfriendly:

"You reek. A little friendly advice - take a bath and get some new clothes."
"Whatever you're about to say, don't bother. I don't want to hear it."
"What hole did you crawl out of?"
"Out of my way, or I'll cut you. Deep."

Quest-Related DialogueEdit

The Dainty SloadEdit

Erikur will point you in Sabine's direction in order to acquire a particular drug. True enough, she is willing to sell the drug to you when you approach her. If you complain about the price she'll be unmoved and treat you to a bit of sarcasm; trying to talk your way around the issue won't help either. If you're rich enough to have 1500 gold she'll be pleased. Otherwise she'll be irritated. Your only option, apart from paying up, is simply to take the item from the chest under the docks after either pickpocketing the key from Sabine or picking the lock on the chest.

I'm looking for some Balmora Blue.
"Well then, you're talking to the right person. I'm the only one left in Tamriel that can get my hands on it.
It's damn near impossible to find anymore. You want to buy it off of me?"
That price is outrageous!
"I'm sorry you feel my illegal contraband is overpriced, perhaps you should bring it up at the next merchant guild meeting.
Look, you want it, I got it. You know the price, so talk to me when you want to cough up the gold."
Any other way to earn it?
"I'm afraid not. How else can a poor, overworked sailor like myself expect to earn a living?"
Sure, I'll take it. (1,500 gold)
"Good. Here, take this key.
The Balmora Blue is locked in a chest under the docks near the Red Wave. Hope you like getting wet."
I don't have enough.
"Sorry, guess it's too rich for your blood. Come back when you find the coin."

If you exit the conversation after asking for Balmora Blue the first time and speak to her again, the beginning of the conversation will be slightly different:

Still have that Balmora Blue?
"I do. Still want to buy it?"


  • Sabine is one of two NPCs in the game, with the other being Eriana, to have a race-specific voice type (in her case this is "FemaleDarkElf") to not actually be a member of said race.
